"It's not about being Chinese. It's about being American. Slash kind of white European. And so for him to have the facility, the language fluency. I took it for one semester, and they laughed at me. You know, there's several different tones Ken, and you don't hear them. So you go to a Chinese restaurant and you just point out the number. I've tried saying cat needs to go, they don't understand. Number 25. I go, chow fun. And I'm with the fat noodle and they're like, they grimmy fried rice. I didn't order this. Okay, I'll eat it. What you just described there, Dennis. Very much reminds me of my late father's youngest sibling Michael Henry, because again, he was the youngest in this immigrant family, grew up poor, but he probably had the most americanization, but he became the president of the Chinese historical society. Who's that? Henry fong. Okay. Yeah, yeah. He epitomized is what I think you've discovered about Larry. You know, he breaks it right away. He didn't go away from it. No. Right. And that's the same thing as Michael Henry. And how would you like Larry? He went and researched in the archives and found all the shipping manifests and everything the angel island interview. Oh, yeah, yeah. Of his father, my grandfather. And my brother did the same thing. And that was the only nephew, not even his own sons, that really showed an inches that. So he made me a copy. Oh, wonderful. Yeah. This is after my awakening. You know, I just didn't magically appear on the shores of California. It's like there was all these other generations before me. And compared to the way, if not from my own country, my own father, who was the oldest son, no interest. Okay? But I'll go Henry's like the Larry yee character. Hold on to it. And celebrate the culture. That's right. And that's what Larry does. That's what I like about the character. And yeah. That's totally cool. I'd love to hear how you got cast in big trouble in little China with this very famous director, John Carpenter. This is 1986 when the movie came out. I had just started acting in film just around maybe a year before, 84, we showed you the dragon dragon. I was gonna, I was doing theater for almost 8 years, and the Bay Area, and then I was gonna drop out. I thought, you know, I was poor. I was thinking, you know, I lived in poverty life. You know, food stamps or whatever, an employment. So I thought, I got to be practical. I'm getting older and so I was about to drop out and then I ended up getting equity card from Berkeley wrapped it into production. And then that summer, they were looking for actors for year of the dragon. Michael cimino film, very controversial, as you know. Yeah, yeah. It was interesting. They were looking for Chinese Americans or Chinese that could speak English. So they went all over the world. Even with an Asia like the China Taiwan or Hong Kong, and I auditioned for the royal authority terrible. And then three months later, they called me their audition again. And they met Michael cimino and they brought me to New York to Ricky rourke. Wow. Wow. And I would think I was finalist for nimby two or three of us, and then they paid me why you gave me a hotel or not. So yeah, and then I got the role and I was, you know, I was so excited because I've never been in a micro community Academy Award and to make it work was a hero of mine own film. So I got that and I guess I got some good notices and then John Carpenter saw me that. I don't know how many people you saw. I don't think he saw that many people or maybe he called me first. I don't really know. But I met him. I didn't have to read or anything. That's how he cast. That's how he cast. Wow. He kind of knows. He has a vision in his head. Yeah. And I think I fit in his vision, so I didn't, I think that David actually said, we want him. So I didn't even have to audition for that, which doesn't happen very much anymore, unless you're a big star. He liked whatever he saw. What have I brought to it? Yeah. And what was interesting when I first started auditioning in LA, a lot of the customs directors said, wow, they sent something different to me because I think when you're in this town, I'm not putting down, I'm in LA after now. And so and they do theater, but something about me was different because I had no desire to be involved. Because what I'm going to be the next stereotype on TV or film. So I didn't really think of coming to LA. I was going to get out of it and do something else. And they found me for the other dragon. Like, you're in your mid 30s around this time. Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no. No, but very early Thursday. Clearly, you have on there. Yeah, and then Carpenter saw and it opened up all these doors. Just doing that film. And it was a controversial film. Even when I got it, when I saw the script is okay. Hey, it's my friend's protest at the film. I understood they weren't protesting me. So I remember seeing the script. What was their beef about? I think in that time and before, from my time, most worlds or I call them the three gs. Gangsters and we'll see other one. There's a throw when I forgot. The geek? Gate gangsters and goofs. Okay, so this was another about the gang and all that. So another, not say there are any gangs, but a white man doing it while Chinese games. So I read the script, I said, okay. The character good guy. He's not undercover cop. He was supposed to be from Hong Kong.

"And I've been around my own personal history and they're 9 Chinatown and being part of the community working for Chinese interaction doing fundraising to that too. And your wife is from China. So I feel like I have just even intuitively a lot of knowledge about what to do. And reading the script gives you the framework to go, okay, what do I have to figure out about him there? And I know that family is association experience. So I'll just comes into play and like most Chinese Americans. I mean, he knows that it's what without saying you know that he takes the Chinese get screwed over at times and that's why he's Leland as a champion to help protect the Chinese community. This is a person it's just trying to strive to make a better community to make a better place for Chinese Americans and yeah, it's just an inspirational character, even though there's something happens that makes them fall a little bending us a check himself, well, what was I blind to or whatever? I have a daughter too. Who went to Yale? So I feel like, you know, and she's gonna go to graduate school and creative writing. So it's just kind of a weird parallel for Larry. Even though I'm not from Chinatown, but so just the grassroots are being in Chinatown and bringing that experience to Larry Ye. I know it's so well. And yeah, that's what's fun is that if you're in a play which the deals with your legacy that really happens where you can bring your own personal Chinese American legacy, like we did a play called paper angels about inch island being a young rebel or just an angry man and incarcerated in Andrew island. So I imagine myself as my grandfather coming over. So when you have that luxury, because most people don't have that luxury, you know? So it's not even a couple of times where they deal with Cantonese American issues. So it's like an homage to our legacy to my grandfather. So yeah, all these things is drawn and knowing when being a Chinese American. Now there's another connection Larry talks about Leland yee, who is a real person who I think is serving time in prison. But another name that comes up and it's a character is shrimp boy and he's real. He's real dude because he doesn't look like a shrimp at all. I mean, he was a gang banger. And I tattoos. Yeah. Yeah, so I remember growing up, we used to do summer youth camps with the first Chinese baptist church kids unwaveringly in China. We had just done one and then that summer and then a month later, the golden dragon restaurant massacre happens. Right. And one of the boys that was at camp was innocently caught in the crossfire was killed. And then the other one was shot in the stomach and his life was never the same. He just passed away recently. But you were telling me that you also kind of have a real life connection. Well, to some of that. Why I want to high school with him. Junior high school, I think. With Joe fong. Yeah. He came to see FOB. My wife was in it, she only after a couple of times. And he came to see the play. Yeah, he stayed behind. I got the meeting, and then we started having meals together. I mean, he's really a bright guy. So what's the fascinating just meeting him? You seem someone who you just know, maybe your neighbor or maybe didn't think of us a gang leader. He was essentially bright. So yeah, it was just very interesting to meet him and hang out with him. So the shrimp boy is apparently the preeminent gang at that time, Tim dominating a lot of things. Yeah. To me, that's another Easter egg, if you will, of this play. It's still grounded in actual events. Well, yeah. Real people. Yeah, that's the beauty of it. Even though it's humorous, there's so much of your Cantonese in America. You join, yeah, that's our story. Yeah, I was there. I remember the association thing and all that stuff. Have you uncovered anything as you've gotten into the script into the role into the character itself, they say, if there's anything that is the key to understanding who Larry is, it's really this. You've mentioned some things. I think his pride in being Chinese American and any clear says, you know, I didn't speak Cantonese until later until I got involved with the association. He just totally embraced the culture, even though he's probably a little younger than us. I guess he never really went through that stage where he just didn't want to be part of his. Like Lauren, right? Maybe he might have for a little bit. I don't know, but he just totally embraced it, which I thought was pretty incredible for that generation. He grew up in Chinatown. They made a difference. But his parents were the immigrants. He was second gen. Right. Right. So the typical pattern is, okay, you're kind of this liminal person in that generation, but you tend to gravitate towards being more Americanized. Yeah. That's the thing. He chose to be part of that community, because most people in our generation have to go well. I'm going to live in somewhere else, not near Chinatown. I'm not really, I don't speak it. So just that kind of, it made me think, wow, he really is. He's not a person who I'm talked to him, but it seems like he's always embraced it. That was a very amazing thing that pride in that in his core. He really was not ashamed of being Chinese American. He was such an advocate. Yeah, that's the thing it really surprised me. Because most of us didn't, you know, just move on. Yeah, yeah. Your workplace, the TV shows we've already mentioned. The movies are.

"There were the three main Chinese American cities. And so I had my own personal tension, wrestling. Oh yeah. Just like Lauren does in this play, okay? So to see that portrayed in such a real way in this play was just mind-blowing to me because it's like, okay, I know I went through that, but I've never seen anybody portray that in a dramatic fashion the way I saw it in king of the yeast. That was such a gift to me. Because I go, okay. It's like this role is a gift to me. Thank you, Lauren. Yeah, I mean, and the play, too. The whole thing. Like over 30 years ago, I had an opportunity with my wife to actually go to China for the first time. Up until that time, I really had no interest, okay? But I had slowly been waking up to my heritage, just like lord in this play, okay? Yes. And so I remember talking to my next brother who's 5 years younger than me. So he's raised the same way. Except even more Americanized than me. He questioned me, Dennis, he goes, why would you want to go to China? It's unsanitary. And weird things. Why don't you go to Europe? That's where all the culture is and all the great art. And I remember looking at him and thinking, well, I probably have something to do with why he thinks that because I was older brother, but I said, I hope you'll reach a point that I'm at now, where I'm making peace with the fact that my roots go back to China. I'll never want to live there. I can't speak the language and even the language my parents speak. They don't speak it anymore, right? But it's like, you know what? I'm okay with this now. And I remember standing on the Great Wall of China. And just feeling the connection, right? It's just like, wow, I can be proud of this. Yes. Okay? Whereas growing up like Lauren in the play, it's like, I have no interest. So that's where I feel so connected to this plot. Because that's what she's wrestling with. And I think there are so many people, even non Asians who are children or grandchildren of immigrants, they're not sure how to how this is this ethnicity or European background or Asian American. How does it relate to being an American now? And what do I what do I keep and what do I remember? Yeah. And I think when you and I were growing up, Dennis, it was all about the melting pot. Leave it to beaver. I'll see you in here. All of that. I mean, I think my first acting teacher was TV. Marx brothers. Oh, yeah, awesome. So I loved all that Saturday afternoon. Those are the white European. Right. And so even though we're all melting into this big American pot, the main outcome is to look white and to think white, whereas today, like our daughter, she's growing up not with this melting pot idea. And she's like, no, what makes America rich is all the distinctive colors and flavors. Right. So I think you and I are a product of the time when we were growing right. The baby boomers were it's a different time. The kids are different. And Internet so this. Oh yeah. There's so much more knowledge can access that we didn't have. We're just, you know, just the history, it's all written down on Google. I'm just curious, you're growing up an hour from me. In Stockton in the delta, you clearly didn't major in drama in theater. You ended up in, was it marketing? Yeah. Mark, I did marketing degree. Okay, were you involved, though, in junior high or high school in school place? Not at all. I'm a pseudo jock, actually. Really? Not excellent in any sport, but I play tennis ran, rode my bike. Yeah, I've even played football on the software just to achieve what it was like when I was a sophomore. Boy, I was rough. Well, you're not a huge physical spoon. No, no. Yeah. But I always dabbled in the things. I mean, photography, whatever. And then I was curious. So actually, after I graduated from college, I think I called the Asian American theater and they had classes, but I missed them. And then by default, I started working for Macy's. But actually, you know, I was a psychic at the end of my junior year in college. I mean, I always been curious about human behavior. But then you know I was being a practical Chinese guy and said, well, I'm not sure what I'm going to be doing psychology. So I'll get practical. And I changed the business. The marketing degree. And then I think it was a messy is going on after two years. I said, I got to try to do something else besides do this. And I've gotten to acting class and just a lightbulb went to right away. I said, oh, because. It's like being an anthropologist being an actor. What do you mean? You have to be culturally research what a character does. His psychology is social psychology and history. And every character I approach it the same way. So that's what drew me to. Oh, just doing it. And also when I was a kid, I used to always stare at people and listen to people. I want you to move or walk the strangers. So there's things I didn't know what to do with I said, oh, and you know, I love sound. It's all these things I didn't know what to do with it. Oh my God, this is it. And incorporates my love of studying people. So a life I would often within a year, I'd left Macy's and studied at the American conservatory theater in the San Francisco for the summer and just start doing it. What happened to Frank chin founded the Asian American theater in San Francisco and he left. Or they fired him. I can't remember..

"Cot key. We're all familiar with this sound. But where did it come from? How did it become lodged in our public consciousness as an auditory indication that something villainous has just occurred? Amelia tait over at The Guardian recently dove into the sounds origins and how it evolved over time from a serious reveal of nefarious activity to a corny joke. So the sound more specifically referred to as a sting, a quick surge of music used almost like a sound effect. Think of a sound logo. This sting has its origins in radio dramas in the mid 20th century. Richard hand, a media professor at the university of East Anglia explained to Tate, quote, one of the challenges of radio, and it's the same now, as it was a hundred years ago, is how do you hook the listener? Those dramatic organ stings could have a powerful effect. They became cliched and we laugh at them, but actually what soundscapes can do can be extraordinary. And Tate adds that stings and sound effects claps of thunder, whistling wind. We're often performed live alongside the dialog back in the days before sound libraries. And Tate was able to dig up a few early instances of the dun dun dun sting in mid century radio shows, but speculates that the sting as audiences would recognize it might actually predate radio. Handbags this up by saying that radio usually adopted already popular tropes to listeners. Tropes from stage performances mostly. And Patrick feaster, cofounder of the first sounds initiative agrees. Fester says that similar stings with similar objectives appeared in a 1912 vaudeville sketch, paradine, melodramas, and that sketch called desperate Desmond, which you can listen to a recording of courtesy of the Library of Congress, link in the show notes, is filled with stings and sound effects that the narrator directs in various ways. Clearly playing on how the sound effects are recognizably used already in different ways in the melodramas that it's parodying. It doesn't use the exact done, done, done, one, but it's close. And the way it plays with sound cues indicates that even though some melodramas would continue using the sting seriously for decades thereafter, as early as 1912, audiences were aware enough of it to laugh at its usage. If feast or even thinks that the famous dun dun dun sting could have ended up with three notes instead of one because it exaggerated the silliness of the sting. And so it was the preferred version for parody. And parodied, it certainly has been. Countless movies, cartoons, and now YouTube videos and tiktoks have used the sting over the last century. And for any that have incorporated it into their creation over the last 38 years, they were probably pulling from one particular source. Shock horror parentheses a by composer dick Walter. Walter was hired by music in 1983 to produce four albums worth of musical phrases that would become the editors companion. He used a full orchestral lineup to make many of the stings that we still use in here today. Here's.

"Plus, the origins of the melodramatic dun dun dun sound and an old SpaceX rocket stage is on track to slam into the moon this march. Here are some of the cool things from the news today. Maybe you've seen some headlines this past week about liquid water being discovered under the south polar cap of Mars, or maybe you've seen headlines saying that there is not water there. Or maybe even what some researchers thought was water, but was actually volcanic rock. What is going on? Is there liquid water under the Martian ice cap or not? Luckily, Phil plait over at bad astronomy is here to clear things up. So basically the is there is into there about liquid water in this particular location on Mars has been going back and forth since at least 2018. That's when a team of planetary scientists using ground penetrating radar on the European space agency's Mars express spacecraft found evidence for what they called a whole Lake of liquid water beneath the South Pole ice cap on Mars. And earlier this week, some folks from that same team reaffirmed their findings, adding that briny water could explain some of the doubts posed by others over the years. And by doubts, I mean that last year, a different team of scientists published findings proposing that a number of other materials could have caused the radar signals that the first team was interpreting as water. And then yet another team of scientists on Monday came to a similar conclusion. This time showing that volcanic rock under ice could be giving off the signal interpreted as water. Now, all of these studies and explanations are based on that original data from the ESA's Mars express and its Mars tool, which stands for Mars advanced radar for subsurface and ionosphere sounding, quoting bad astronomy. Mars bounces signals off the surface of the red planet to map the topography. But some of the radar can penetrate ice. The South Pole of Mars has an extensive cap of water ice on it. More than three kilometers deep in some places. In one spot, though, and later more places, the radar return from Mars was brighter than expected from just ice. This bright layer was consistent with it being a Lake of briny water, though a very shallow one, less than a meter thick and 20 kilometers across. But then the second team looked at other materials that could reflect radar in the same way, including clays, metal bearing minerals, and very salty ice. All of these are common on Mars, while you need special conditions to keep water liquid that close to the surface. Very high salinity, the subsurface heat source like magma and so on. So the original claim got weaker. The third team that published Monday did something clever. They looked at preexisting Mars radar reflection maps of other regions of Mars, which can be mapped to known terrains like volcanic regions, planes, and so on. They then created models of what those terrains would look like to Mars if they were covered in ice like that at the Martian South Pole. While the exact mineral compositions of those areas may not be known, their reflectivities are, so they can still be used to see what the instrument would see if they were buried under ice. And that is how they came to the conclusion that volcanic rock would give off similar signals to liquid water. And since volcanos are common on Mars, it's not too far of a stretch. But then we come to the most recent paper from Tuesday, which conducted a lab experiment showing water can still be a liquid at that super cold base of the ice temperature. We're talking negative a 100°F or negative 75°C. If it's a briny solution of perchlorates, like volcanos, perchlorate is also common on Mars. So which team is right here? Well, we can't really know. And that's ultimately where plate lands too. Any team claiming complete certainty about liquid water existing beneath the Martian south polar surface or not, based on all available data right now is extrapolating too much with too little evidence. As plate puts it quote, what can be said is that under some conditions, liquid water can exist in these places. But the observations are also consistent with a layer of various minerals and rocks. So there's not enough to make a firm claim either way. Arguments can be made for and against both ways. Yes, volcanic rock works. But the kind they found is relatively rare on Mars, only on about 2% of the surface. That makes it seem unlikely that this is the cause. Yes, perchlorate brines can keep water liquid at very low temperatures, but then you need something deeper under the surface, possibly a pool of magma to keep the temperature even that high. And you have to be careful when using special circumstances to explain in observation end quote. He also notes that if liquid water is there, it would be so briny that it probably wouldn't support organic molecules, so it would kind of negate the whole reason that liquid water on Mars would be exciting to begin with. But hey, there's somewhere else that might have liquid water. Saturn's moon, mimas, AKA the death star moon. So named because of a prominent crater on its gray surface, giving it an uncanny likeness to the empire's secret weapon. Mimas made headlines earlier this month for the possibility that its housing and entire underground ocean. Here's the verge, quote, while the surfaces of both Jupiter's Europa and Saturn's Enceladus show signs of geologic activity suggesting an internal heat source that allows liquid water to exist. The surface of mimas is heavily cratered, leading Southwest research institute scientist Alyssa rodent to suspect it was just a frozen block of ice, according to a press release. However, wrote a now thinks memes cratered like appearance kept in ocean hidden. In research published earlier this month in the journal Icarus, Rodin and her colleague Matthew walker of the planetary science institute in Tucson, Arizona, show that tiny wobbles or librations in the moon's orbit detected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft can be explained by gravitational interactions with Saturn that produce enough heat to maintain a liquid ocean beneath a thick icy shell. A model developed by the team suggests that icy shell is 14 to 20 miles thick. The findings suggest mimas is a compelling target for further investigation. Rodents said in a release. So we're talking about a possible ocean about 10 million cubic kilometers or more. A thousand times the amount of water in Lake Superior, says plate. But just like the liquid water on Mars, plate emphasizes that this new paper does not prove the underground ocean on mimas actually exists just that quote the physics allows it. And it would explain the odd orbit of the moon and some of its behavior as it orbits Saturn. While it would open up a lot more questions about nemesis formation, the possibility of this underground ocean is pretty exciting because even if mimas doesn't have liquid water, even if Mars doesn't have liquid water, the idea that a tiny moon could just reinforces how much potential for life there is out there. Even just within our own solar system. In.

Donate two three three seven seven seven if you would like to help them Help get people out of afghanistan. I wanna turn to the economy. There are a number of stories out there about the economy that i think Really shed light on the fact that we really are going through a level of realignment in this country in variety of ways. I have said for a while. We're in a political realignment stake. Jd vance for example in ohio jd. Vance hillbilly. Lg author is running for the us. Senate he's running. He had been a vocal critic of donald. Trump has become a supporter of donald trip over time. Very focused on The white working class. He's pro union pro free speech. He's pro social safety net. He is not by any. Stretch of the vegetation libertarian He is a big government conservative. If ever there was one and in fact a lot of people are saying his got the same views as people on the left did in the forties. And he's a truman republican. If you will earn fdr republican. And he's not alone. I've had a number of people. Tell me that they more and more view themselves as an old school democrat. They are pro unions. Which i actually think it's a terrible idea It just drives up costs among other things. i not as worker for legions funds the left ultimately But they're they're pro union They want good government. Education run systems. They want access to colleges. They want government healthcare. They want a social safety net benefits for people it very much. Sounds like a nine hundred thousand nine hundred sixty democrat with conservative social policy and in fact the data does show that if there's really a constituency for a new party in this country it is socially conservative and fiscally liberal a lot of people in this country of the academic and political elite believe we need to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative. We need to restrain the size and scope of government finances but we need to be all in an abortion gay rights transgender rights In the culture war from the left in fact Hispanic voters black voters and a lot of white working class perfectly. Happy with a government that provides a social safety net at large social dividend but is deeply conservative when it comes to life and transgender politics and the the alphabet gang war that we're all in with culture there's actually a greater constituency for that. Jd vance is one of several candidates. Other some of whom were funded by the billionaire. Peter the'll who are taking this tax. It's very interesting to watch his rise. I'm not sure..

"I support every any voice. That's gonna come into the process. That's my campaign finance reform so what we campaign finance reform look like. Then we'd do. We think there's too much money in politics or not enough for what. Yeah no absolutely. I mean look i know. Where do i look. I'm i'm standing as i said. Gosh i feel like. I'm jumping around a little bit because i don't want to contradict myself I want to win that. Okay well listen. At least you're at least you're honest about it. I want to win. So i'm i'm a hypocrite in the degree that right now. The war is so intense. I wanna win and whatever superpac there. Whatever gets us there. I think the left wants to win. And you guys have really been showing us that. It's not politics as usual. Were war or ten. Show that now. I'm okay with the war that's all on. We're gonna keep rotating power and that is secure. If i didn't think power is gonna keep rotating. I wouldn't so i'm okay with it but in the long run i would like to see all campaign campaign finance limited and i'd like to see done publicly and only recorded forum and that's kind of what represent us says it'd be interesting to keep drawing back. The influence of money. Well i will. I will both give a laugh a little bit. Because that's the funny position in a way. But i'll give you mad props or at least be honest about the fact that what you want. What you think will improve our our country limiting campaign finance and making it public and ending gerrymandering. Those things are absolutely necessary. And i totally agree with you. And i'll give you big props for at least being frank and honest enough to say but not right now. Because i want to win. I so it's good for you. I appreciate that type of honesty and hypocrisy. i want. Tell people to check out on thirteen and a half reasons not to be a liberal and how to enlighten others. Even if you don't agree maybe they'll be some ways that maybe you can sit in there. You read the book and you think okay. At least i can see what the arguments going to be. So i can prepare my response to it because judd has given some folks on his side of the aisle arguments to make and ways to have discussions with their liberal family. And i like to know if my mom's going to read this. Because i'm certain she will. I'm certain she would it. I would like to know what arguments she's going to be coming. We with and so. I think you should check it out if you are a conservative..

"I think we started seeing each other around politic long time ago i don't take it personally but my take is. My original show is conservatively unplugged. It was like a lighthearted take on the daily show and we pitched it all around. Hollywood and people like this is great. There's a lot of people out there but there's no way people are going to watch a republican show. Republicans and i went to the republicans. I said hey. This is us making fun of ourselves like no way. We're not gonna do that. So i just don't think that country exists and i don't think it's personal as the system rolls who you're gonna win your points of view you're going to alienate the base where we're gonna take you out during the midterms is gonna flip over empower power. Same thing's going to happen at the end. It's historically written in the books guys like you. And i are at this time in history when it's really big tech and social media have grabbed these issues. So what can i say to this issue. It's politics as usual but it is a major issue. We're talking about constitutionally shifting more power the government which conservatives are always gonna stand against. Are there any things that your party says or does right now that make you concerned at all that they might not win back certain things that might not win certain races in the midterms that they could have one. Have they done a different way. For example i'll give shit to my own party. I agreed with abigail span burger back in the day. If we hung tight to de-fund the police that we would end up losing a lot of seats. And perhaps we did because of the defunding police argument. I love my team but part of loving my favorite team is criticizing them when they play a bad game. So are there ways that you can look at the republican party right now and say if we don't get together on this particular issue or in this state or in this area we're going to end up not picking up the house. Come the midterms well. There's a lot i mean. There's a lot of contention over a lot of different areas. So i think i would. I would answer that more difficult for me. You know i. I'll tell you why kind of checked the bar smarter to know what. But you're smart enough to know what's plays to to american audiences right booklets sale so i know what will work. And what won't i assume or believe. So what does the party not doing right. Maybe what is the problem party. what what what. What if anything do you think. I list several things. Perhaps if i were being interviewed come to your show you can ask me this that the democrats i think need to do better at what do republicans need to do better at if they wanna win if they want to unseat raphael warnock in twenty two if they want to win the open seat here in north carolina in twenty two. What republicans have to make sure they don't screw up. I mean i appreciate the question almost puts it like am. I aware of every issue in every state but i would say more so man in this battle. I think it's going to be. It's going to be a real battle. Anything that panders to the concept. The big trap for us has been racism. Big trap i think we have to continue to pivotal. You're going to say. I'm not answering your question but i think we have to pivot away from race and we have to not embrace it. I think we have to not legitimize a lot of the claims going around the. How do you think you'd be legitimate. Maybe we're missing is showing people that we really are we. We liberated the slaves as as trump said. Juneteenth is really about what our vision is for america. We really care more about the middle class. This these things probably incense you because you won't agree. No i'm not. I heard talk to the middle of americans say you know the problem. The only problem. I have with that is the fact that you believe you know what i would think because i what's valid that's about. I don't know what. I actually don't know that i disagree with that. I think and i'm not going to say you didn't answer the question because she very well you very much. Did you said that you think that. Republicans need to do a better job of not validating democrats arguments about race. And sure i mean. I'm not a republican. I can't interest leading and focusing on care. Here's what here's one thing. I've always said it to my my democrat. Friends go we care. We both care we care. We're carrying country. We aren't compassionate conscious carrying country capitalistic as well as throwing in there which is imbued with so much amazing freedom. There's an amazing book that i quoted my article. I just don't have right in front of me. But they said if you take us fifty years ago to now we're absolutely we're absolutely winning the game evolving as a culture. But you know. I try to focus on the positivity of here. It is enlightenment now. The case for reasons science humanism progress as we care more about humanity. We're apt to mistake the harms around us. For signs of how low the world is sunk rather than how high our standards have risen an meyrick lacey takeover live and gratitude. Trust the divine for everything. There is a season be patient. And i think that you and i are in a game of bombast game. How much do i want my immune system and my mind and my business and my family talking about politics. I don't my dad's said this. He said something beautifully said. Hey son if government's really working left or right. You're not going to hear about it that much and i think we've lost that you know but you and i we want to hear about it because we want to keep these on the surface. I'm just trying to. I'm gonna look extremely hard right to you. Because i'm trying to poke holes in the negative parts of the liberal thought balloon. You're trying to poke holes in the negative parts of the conservative thought balloon that maybe unconscious to the refinements of care and that's a tragedy but unfortunately as warriors unite can't go out after the rugby game and have a beard but maybe today we did listen and i think one of the things you agree with that people who can't see us because they can only hear us. I can tell you both jackson. I have smiled throughout this entire discussion. So we're not arguing with each other out of out of anger. We are certainly disagreeing but not being disagreeable at any point not do think that most people should try a little harder to do that in the future. I also point out one thing that you said earlier in the show when you when we were talking about the structure of our government and you said that you were talking about how it takes a long time to turn the ship and you did say whether you meant to or not You said that neither party is going to make huge drastic changes and be able to destroy anything in this country because of our system. And so i would just argue that all of us all of us not talking specifically just you judd. But to everyone we've got to do a better job of remembering that and not screaming that the sky is falling every time we disagree with someone and i think that both sides could probably do that better. I have a whole bunch of questions from a from listeners. Who knew this was going to be a really good and exciting show. We probably can't get too many of them now. Because i've run mound mouth a lot this time but travis from reno you should conservative still back our department of justice and other law enforcement institutions. You know it's really scary. It's not as evident to the left. I think we've got a greater problem travis. And the problem is is that it seems like the elites left and right are untouchable so winded hillary get persecuted. When did trump get persecuted. Let's look at everybody. Let's look was the d. o. J. weaponized in ads on record muller were their politics and our justice system justices no longer fully blind so as we were talking about the three branches of our government. I hope that both left and right put in more scrutiny of de-politicising justice..

"And i do want to see people leading to the middle. And putting america's consensus i but the problem is clay. We have less consensus then used to be. There is a group in the middle of america. And larry elder said this he said. Hey if you're if you feel like you're party left you said you didn't leave the party left. It's it's been so polarized really tough for you to answer the question. Though i mean i just wanna know could you say okay. Do something in exchange for something else. And that's my boy. People should be doing this. I agree with you. People should be doing logical trade-offs. Okay so joe manchin offers. I mean this. This sort of blew my mind this morning. Because i when i heard that stacey abrams had supported joe mansions compromise to the voter. Id bill. I was not paying attention to the news yesterday for obvious reasons. I just learned this morning. That stacey abrams herself came out in support. Joe mansions compromise or at least said that she would back it But immediately republicans and mitch mcconnell and roy blunt called it the stacey abrams of voter rights package and they said they would not vote for it and second democrats are like stacey. Abrams are now with a nationwide voter. Id requirement because. That's what's joe mentioned. Bill purging the voter rolls and a nationwide voter. Id requirement which democrats have been screaming against four years voter id but joe mansions compromise allows for a nationwide voter id package in exchange for ending gerrymandering and mandating early access to voting. It is almost a bill that i'm pretty willing to be moderate on some of these things but it's almost a bill that i thought damn purging voter rolls allowing voter i d. That's a lot to swallow. But he got democrats to swallow and republicans won't do that. I'm like you'll never get voter. Id laws nationwide any other way. Why not take it. Why can't people compromise. if democrat. joe manchin can bring the democrats to the table on this. Why can't he get ten republicans to say. Okay we'll vote with an awesome okay. Well what did he actually say so he said. Here's what mcconnell said senate. Democrats seem to have reached a so-called compromise election takeover among themselves in reality. The plan endorsed by. Abrams is no compromise. Is still subverts. The first amendment supercharge cancel culture and the less name and shame campaign model. it takes redistricting away from state. Legislators in hands it over to computers. It's still retains s ones rotten corn saw on the fundamental idea. That states not the federal government should decide how to run their own elections. They don't we don't want to federalize but look or sound. It sounds to me like you're looking for things to disagree with instead of looking for things to agree with customers because you just said a minute ago you mentioned that particular organization where identified three major problems and one of them which i think we agree on. What's partisan gerrymandering right. This bill would do. I think that voter. Id is something that we should require. Nationwide no but would i give it in order to get rid of partisan gerrymandering fuck. Yes sorry for cussing bleep out of you to absolutely. I'd give it in order to get rid of partisan gerrymandering that is sort of how politics used to work. It certainly worked that way between tip o'neill and ronald reagan. It even work that way at times between newt. Gingrich and bill clinton i mean even they got stuff done. I mean holy crap. Imagine that but why is it that the perfect becomes the enemy of the good for both parties. But in this particular instance it sounds like the perfect becomes the enemy of the good for mitch. Mcconnell is he afraid perhaps that if he allows the actually votes for voter id. He won't have anything to bitch about anymore. I mean you're getting a huge piece of what you said you wanted for years. And the actual president elect is probably the issue. I mean you just said newt. Gringrich in tip o'neill nancy pelosi is a very difficult character to make peace in our nation. I mean you have to look a little bit further into the party structure. It's very it's war for her. I think she is there rhinos. She's the guy. No i'm just asking about this senate thing how did we i mean that's that is the okay. So we've poxy absolutism and then like distracting from the actual argument with me. You are talking about a senate no. Yeah but i'm talking about a senate bill. I'm talking about joe. Manchin i'm talking about mitch. Mcconnell us one on fs one which is senate one so nancy pelosi involved with that if they pass it then we can have the argument. Have me on your show. If they pass it in the senate and nancy pelosi it up. Then i'll be happy to tell you right now. I'm talking about but i agree. I mean listen. Why do we have to the systems worked for so long. it didn't work during covert mail in ballots. As far as we're concerned it opened up a lot of weakness the system right now. What what is misdoing. He's pushing back for more refinements. This is politics so if we were on the show in two weeks there might be another modern resolution. We'll see your reacting to the middle of the political process which we both know is extreme in bombastic. I'll tell you something. I've learned clay and you've been doing this. I don't know seven years. Probably similar kind of conversion time..

"If people are trying to be moderate are they going to automatically be demonized as radicals by the other side no matter what. The analysis of the left is that the six percent of your party that is the hard progressive left has a disproportionate amount of influences in alienating. As far as i've done my research about twenty six percent of your party with their policies so there's definitely a crisis in the democratic left as there is a crisis but a smaller one in the conservative right with those that are aligned with trump. I'm gonna political room for fifteen years. And cheney might not call it a smaller. But i'll feed your point because you you criticize a little spearhead of of that problem for us and i'm gonna say for us because i'm aligned i'm aligned. I like trump dishonest as gnome. I like i think pompeo it'd be a great great leader but there is a real issue of who's in charge of the democrat party for us and we see that alienating so it's hard to trust that joe's a moderate and i will say i know his whole. I know his whole we talking about here. Joe biden item. I know i know his history. And i agree that you put him in office because you thought he was actually less hard left progressive and representing more of america. But he's pretty weak. We're not seeing. You've never had a president saying i'm gonna get in trouble. I'm gonna get in trouble. I'm going to get in trouble. He's not in his power. The way trump was just on an external of view. Just being an american citizen doesn't seem to me that in his administration that he's absolutely in charge so it feels like elements that aren't aligned. Your core base have a lot of influence. Things i've seen joe do is destroy jobs. I seen him accommodate china. I seen him back often. Iran deal in the first hundred and one hundred sixty days that he's been in office. You've seen that. That's what he said. Come on one twentieth. But he's setting that tone. Let me just finish is what he did with guns in was very aggressive this earth. He's only been president january. What do you do with critical race. Serious deferent- a run and climate is being accommodate climates. The biggest burn of money we can. We can take on right now. We set it on the side. Do you notice you guys. Let go of climate for a while. Because you couldn't have. Climate through paris accord it became a political tool it. Look i love. I love nature but we need to fix it in a rational. We don't need to destroy oil jobs and gut energy independence. It took a seventy six years to get to energy independent. So i'm not seeing a rational president from a right leaning point of view and i liked this conversation klay. I'm not here to get in your face. Or i want to hear what you have to say because we're unhappy to well. I mean i'm wondering as i hear you say these things if we're not at a place where maybe at some point. We all have to just accept. We're going to be unhappy and going to disagree with a president. If they aren't in our party i mean i i hear the things that you're saying and i recognize that they are not. I mean the nice thing about this country is we do have checks and balances do have a system in place where not only are there three separate branches but even within one of those branches there are two separate houses that things have to go through both of them and in one of those houses you have to get sixty percent of our system is set up in such a way that it is really tough to get things passed. It's not as simple as joe biden being president and saying. Here's what i wanna do. And simply because they they happen to have a majority in the legislative branch. Things get passed anything that gets passed including most of the stuff in his first one hundred however many days. We're at now head to pass his desk through the house through the senate where it had to get more than sixty votes with a few exceptions and then had to be signed by him. We're not talking about some sort of dictatorship where he is in control of everything or where alexandria across cortes corey buscher in control of everything. We're talking about a system that was set up to make it deliberative and that every law that gets passed has to have some sort of like can't just be enacted without any deliberation and yes when donald trump was president and republicans controlled both the house and the senate that made my stomach turn a lot because there were things that i really didn't agree with but it was difficult for me as per just me to say well this is absolutely anathema to what everybody in the country wants because at the end of the day they controlled that republicans control the house and the senate because they were voted for and i criticize my own party often for not making stronger arguments. Is it not possible that maybe republicans didn't win. Some of these elections because of their arguments weren't strong enough sure. Of course there's a system but since you're talking about the system. I think a really important thing for us to know why you think you know. Even though we have these three branches there over three hundred pieces of legislation that were by passed by both parties. That went to harry. Reid and ansi pelosi desk. During the obama years the process called black hold they were just killed right so you can use executive orders. You can black hole bills and you can shut down the process. You're right you're absolutely right. And i think mayor garland would be the person who could tell us most about that because republicans have done it too and you agree with that. Yeah i would absolutely room. And that's what i'm saying is we are going to be as not to mess up your themed. Show this'll be. Maybe we can't get along the more work buddy. I was a lifelong liberal. I was a socialist in a matter. Of fact i everybody socialist win. They're in their teens and twenties. It's quite right until they like trump kidding right now. look tax. Tab top tax bracket are in california nationally. Now between is saying california. Most people i've i've been told by so many of them other conservative friends that california the liberal hellhole. And everybody's leaving. Why are you still there. Why haven't you left yet. I surf that easy. Well i'm gonna beaches georgia and florida have beaches to south carolina. I don't have swell. I listen. I will say i'm already. I'm moving. we're talking about moving. Six months a year to another place. And i go there and i'm like oh california's amazing. So you know the bottom line. My uncle said something great. He was head vice president vice president of merrill lynch for forty two years and he says you know no matter who's in party. He goes taxes. Go up and say we'll just work harder. That's the american way. So you know you just gotta work harder during the thing. That what we're going in i look back. This is a perfect point.

"Trouble and fraud in the election but at the same time not widespread trouble and fraud not enough fraud to have changed the outcome of the election and this is why we have an electoral college. But why do we want to get rid of this. Let me ask you another. I don't think that's why we haven't electoral college. It's why we have votes than we have. Vote counter originally colleges also to spread the vote as well as protect people from right but it but then have anything to do with fraud so fraud itself. If so question is a great break ties. It made it harder to steal the vote that in also spreads the vote across the nation. Not you're not gonna get me to disagree with the electoral college. I'm again against my disagree on my. Yeah go ahead. no i was just saying. That's something that bill barr himself said. Trump's attorney general who democrats demonized and hated for a long time and. I'm saying. I didn't really like himself. But he himself said. There was evidence of some mismanagement. Some some evidence of fraud but there was not enough to have changed the outcome of this election and it was not widespread. There was no evidence of widespread fraud in the election. And anytime i hear. Democrats be willing to speak out against democrats. I listen a little bit more carefully. Because i want to say i want to know. Okay why did they. Why did they step out and have the to speak out against their own party. When does note nothing to help them. It's one of the reasons that i think. Joe manchin has had found success in getting some people on both sides to listen to him but when bill barr steps out and says no. I'm sorry the guy who gave them a job. Who if he were to win. I would keep my job His wrong there hasn't been widespread. Fraud what motivation does somebody like that. Have to say something like that. I can understand even the most insane idea that yes there are some democrats who hated donald trump. So much that they were they would do anything in the world to make sure he lost. But bill barr didn't have that motivation diddy brimingham but that was given the information at the time. I mean there's a north carolina judge it just went through thousands of ballots. Say these look photocopied and is making enquiries in north carolina right now and then democrats are grabbing and say oh well let's try to flip it over. Let's try to flip it over. Let's try start flipping states over to biden. I mean so. Even democrats are acknowledging fraud by saying that. Oh okay you want to audit. Let's audience so bill boiled saying let the on it because they don't believe there was fraud. You're talking to somebody who's north carolina. So i know what happened. America will choose stability over justice at times. We are very fragile. Nation the democrat the people in the supreme court that you just mentioned that have been protecting the boat. It's perfect it's particularly not something that's handled by the supreme court. They don't wanna get involved in an issue of federalism. That's gonna change if hr one goes through sr one now that they're trying to push through but look at what who do we save in the crash you know. We didn't say bear stearns right. We saved goldman sachs. We went for stability. Our nation was on the edge of actually revolution at this. We got serious russ and so you know. Bill barr came out the time. There's not enough information at that point but information continues to come out and it needs to be for guys like me other people down the street. Your neighbors a half of us wanna to know that we're absolutely absolutely clear. Just like when gay marriage went through. That was a major law concerns. Like oh it's legislatively clear. God bless all gay marriage. Let's who cares now. The issue is not that. I am not talking about physician. Don't him like that's exactly what they said. And if they had there would not have been further cases involving it but to your point about stability so it sounds like i let me follow that argument with you for a minute. America chooses stability over. What was it again. America chooses not to ability over the over justice stability over justice in certain situations maybe in times of crisis us crash in two thousand eight as an example but but wouldn't stability have been sticking with the same administration that was already in power if they were gonna choose. Stability would not be the way to choose stability get sounds like america may have chosen stability and may have chosen that perhaps joe biden was more stable than donald trump was if they had chosen stability. If you're to make your argument true they would have. You would have to be saying that. Donald trump one 'cause keeping the same administration would be the stability right. I think i think that's sharp shooter in a black and white ideological fallacy. Because you're taking part of the statement and saying that no the stability was to keep our nation intellectual bright. I mean all the ap called early called this election for biden and then everybody else jumped on and called it for biden because the way that the votes they're song barbara is or did those votes come in because they were some weird stuff happening klay komo. We shut down. There was fires i mean. They're they're sprinklers. There was people pulling out ballots and remember. Here's the thing to remember the rationalist me. Just get your heart on this. One is when bush gore when december twenty six. I mean that was just a handful of votes less than a thousand votes. If you look at state by state this this was like sixty thousand votes man. This was not a huge amount of votes before. And then there were the sudden spikes. I went. I went through this. There were thirty anomaly. Anomalies to the voting process. That all happened within the same forty eight hours. That had never been broken before. Statistically there were aberrations so that actually happened. You were a lot of your opinions. You can't say that. Thirty thirty statistical norms were all broken because mail in ballots and kovin. So there's okay. That was a unique situation. Let's just vet. That doesn't mean i'm a seditionists. In two thousand sixteen there were just as many people who hated donald trump as they were in two thousand twenty and there were probably more people who hated hillary clinton in two thousand sixteen than certainly than hated. Joe biden was was the same sort of fraud in the election in two thousand sixteen. Well that's what we've talked about this baby what. We're so focused on systemic racism. Racism which i again you have every you say that you can see exactly where the fraud was in two thousand twenty like you know in places to go recount etc where we're was there that similar sort of evidence in two thousand sixteen fraud or did he just said. I was in two thousand sixteen in ohio and suddenly buses predominantly ethnic americans. Arrive and fifteen of us had gone to door knocks. So we set up our chairs and we sat there and we watched people brought in by organized. Just rotating in idealists. People voting multiple times going to other tables. I mean this ohio in two thousand sixteen in dublin. Yeah i've seen that was will so my question is why didn't republicans go after the fraud. Then why weren't they upset about it. Then if there was fraud in two thousand sixteen if you saw it in ohio then in two thousand sixteen why not go after it or was it because okay we won this one so we don't care about it i mean. Is it possible. The democrats don't care about fraud now because they happen to win so they don't care about it. I think you're putting out a moral high ground argument. I just gave that right. I think there's something there's nothing broken in the ethics so the conservative right on some kind of selfish blind agenda trump was phenomenon for this country and he had like three hundred. Seventy eight positive achievements they get buried under the things that happened in trade. The things that happened in employment the things that happened with the defense there are a lot of very positive things happening that we're changing politics as usual. It's possible that feeling about him. Being a racist so it is impossible. Did a lot of great things that conservatives really like. Listen at the end of the day as i said earlier elections have consequences and no i didn't agree with donald trump on a whole ton of his policies right and it's positions. I also didn't agree. With george w bush on his policies and positions. And i certainly don't expect you or other conservatives to agree with obama or president biden but these are the things that happen right when someone gets into office especially if they have control of all three of both houses of the legislature and the white house. Is it possible though that someone could be a very very good president to you and to other conservatives but still have satisfied more than fifty percent of the population statistically. There's no other american presidency that would fall into that category..
"duns" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
"So how the heck are we going to get along began as a podcast that would bring together panelists from across the political landscape who had differing and often opposing viewpoints and would allow them to kind of discuss issues face to face and i was going to try to do my very best to moderate and kinda shed as much of my own bias as possible and work towards the goal of trying to see if there might be any way at all for disagreeing panelists to find common ground with each other on anything and then we all know what happened. Next cova came along a few weeks into our ron and it said us all into hiding in our own homes and we continued with the original format at first for the show. We had the full panel of guests. That disagreed but we started to find out more often than not when several guests tried to discuss issues while they were sitting in their own living rooms or offices and they were hundreds of miles away from each other and they were only hearing audio not being able to talk face to face. Well let's just say that is not the answer to how the heck are we going to get along so partially because of covid reasons and partially because some of the yelling really started causing hearing issues for me. We shifted the format to just one guest alone with me. So i own a little bit more of my bias now and but the conversations are still really about our guests discussing what their thoughts are on why. They're so much division in america and we found through this sort of changed format that. What's so so many of us have found around the country in our personal lives often is the case in our personalized when you speak to people one on one face to face when two people can actually sit down together and have a discussion without feeling the need to perform for cameras and microphones. Oftentimes those folks even if they disagree on so much are able to find ways to discuss issues and find common ground or disagree without being disagreeable so perhaps maybe one of the answers after a year. One of the answers to our primary question. How the heck are we gonna get along possibly might be have more one on one conversations so couldn't answer be to stop trying to talk about issues communally and instead do more one on one problem solving but as with any experiment or hypothesis. You have to test the theory and put it through as many rigorous trials as possible. So over the past few weeks i asked the producers at politico onto. Try as hard as they can to find guest. Who will disagree with me as firmly as possible on any issue. Someone who is apologetic unapologetic really about their opinions. And who would not hesitate to argue with me on anything and they had they tell me. They have swung for the fences for this episode. So this week. I'm excited to talk to politico. Guest judd. Dunning judd is the president of dwp capital so. He's an investment banker. That's good start. He's the host of unapologetic with judd. Dunning unapologetic that sounds promising. He's a frequent guest contributor on newsmax tv mercy and he's the author of the book thirteen and a half reasons not to be liberal and how to enlighten others so yeah i think this one might strain the hell out of our hypothesis and it should be good. I'm going to ask him if he knows any progressives at all that he likes and if there are any signs of hope that he sees for less division in america and we will see together if he can help us. Answer the question. How the heck are we going get along lolo alot. How are you. I'm well now. I am pump that you could catch reschedule though. Because i have been. I don't know if. Dan told you very much looking forward to this. Because our whole concept for the show is how the heck can we get along and talking to people with different views and you know we started with this big panel thing and i was sort of moderating it but over cove we have been gone to one on one interviews and i started realizing well. Here's an easy way to get along. Just talk to people you agree with. That will saw all and so that. That's not what i want to do. So i'm pumped that we don't you know. I don't think we see eye to eye on everything. I've read a few things that you've written. But i do wanna talk about them and figure out. Maybe there are some places where we agree. I read some of your your. I guess it's satirical stuff. Some of that. I couldn't tell if it was satire or if it was like you really seriously minute but so i just kinda wrote down some of the things that you talked about touch on and whatnot and from issues and i just want to get your thoughts on them and let's see where we go with it. Yeah i won't. I won't prep or reacting anything first of all. It's fun to be on with you if you'll remember when i was doing politic on i do that movie. Cu news goes to politico kahn which they screened there before the comedy. Show the year before. I have stocked. You and you tried to be on my show and it's you're really busy that year and that's why i'm like you gotta get on the show and i got i got a bunch. I got Dan's dad and a bunch of people on their cargo. So you were a near miss that year and we'd bet it political so anyway. It's fun to be here. We are and whether we agree or disagree out. I'd love and we'll talk. My best friend is a bernie kratz socialists. Well that was one of my questions. I wanted to know if you knew any liberals you like the your your your your.

Jones keep people at organizations large and small and lots more so Definitely subscribe to the today podcast so that you can basically here are insights on the technology markets and how different industries are applying emerging concepts machine learning. And just in general long story short if you want to understand how. Ai is being put into practice today. Which is why this is called a today and where it's heading. Make sure to subscribe day today. On your favorite podcast provider and listen to our hundreds of episodes. Yes so as ron mentioned today we wanted to spend some time talking about our twenty twenty. One a. i. Market predictions and forecasts at the beginning of every year. We always you know. Take a step back and look at what happens over the past year and where we things going moving forward so acog melinda in case this is your podcast or you're just starting to listen to us. We're an ai. Focused research education and advisory firm and we really focus on market intelligence. We cover all over twenty thousand vendors in the space so we have a great pulse of what's going on and we work with both public and private sector companies so we really have a holistic view of the space so we wanted to spend some time today reflecting back on what we're seeing in the market and then making some predictions and forecasts about where the market will go in twenty twenty one so one of the first predictions that we have. These are not in any sort of ranking order. They're just how he laid out this podcast. So we have that worldwide adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning. We've seen it growing at a very high rate and were predicting that this is not going to stop anytime soon. I mean so. There's a lot of indications that show that we are moving towards much more use of what we call the seven patterns of ai and we will link to them in the show notes but one of the things about is that it is a fairly generic term general term which corresponds to making machines intelligent and doing the things that humans would otherwise. Do you ask people as to what they're specifically doing. It's usually gonna be one or more of these seven pattern so it might be a recognition system or it could be a conversational system or could be something doing predictive analytics or trying to find patterns or anomalies or it could be trying to develop the hyper personal profile. The hyper personalization profile of you. So that it can no to tailor things better for your needs or it could be an autonomous system systems that are meant to operate with little or no human interaction. Or perhaps we're doing something we're trying to have. Machines find the solution to something you goal driven systems and when you talk about it from that perspective it's like yeah chat bots are growing recognition. Systems are growing the use of machine learning for patterns and anomaly detection as well as predictive analytics. that's growing. You know maybe hyper personalization. Maybe that that's been a little bit slower to grow. We are definitely seeing a lot. More autonomous stuff whether or not. They're all entirely successful a whole other story. But we are and we're seeing of course a lot more use of even goal driven systems and part of the reason why we say this is that there is some fud in the market Other analyst firms in particular are saying that they're seeing some large number of data science projects that are failing. You know gardner. Says eighty seven percent of data. Science projects failed to deliver on their for their executive sponsors and seventy percent of machine. Learning models lose relevancy overtime. Well these are. There is some truth to that. Yes models do have what's called drift and then later what we're going to talk about in this. Podcast is the growth of technology area technology market with an ai called l. Ops that specifically addresses this area of models overtime lose their relevancy. But that's just like the thing let's like saying well. I built an app in one thousand nine hundred ninety six therefore i need to update it in the year. Two thousand three two thousand eighteen thousand thirteen two thousand eighteen. Yeah yes. that's what. Technology and technology doesn't standstill. Say all the fact that you have to update it means. It's not like the fact that you have to up it means you're actually using it and the needs for that. Continue to grow. If you didn't care you just throw it away so
"duns" Discussed on What Got You There with Sean DeLaney
"It's more vivid now and really connected. Final one here I would love to know if you could sit down, do this with someone interview for an entire evening dead or alive not a family member friend is there anyone that you'd love to do that with other people? I would love to do that with. And some of them are skewered. Only social psychologists in very few of them would recognize the name do stuff. So. We'll pass that one. He's the great leap terrific work that no one ever noticed. He anticipated a lot of what was going to happen. So. I would just spend time with him because he for a lot of the themes that in my field. Are Very central today he had the decades before anybody else had what was his name again Gustav Kaiser Bless you. All I have not come across him but. Very few very few people have but. He was talking about. situation ISM. Just give you one example idea that Were much as a species for much more flexible much for response to the situation we're in as opposed to our actions really coming out of our character. This goes back idea mentioned before. Individually, we're all unique and we're all characters, but when you get to a specific situation where circumstances. We're all more like one another than than not. I mean the situation drives our behavior. That's what situation isn't. That is. Really in the old days couldn't predict who is going to go all the way in the shocking experiment that was done literally shocked well, not was state shocking electricshocking. Done by. Stanley milgram but. Many more people than you would think when all the way. So So that's the ideal situation he was. He was talking about that well, before anybody else was that becomes a dominant theme because Milgram, because of other experiments in in the sixties and seventies but I, mean trying to think if there's anybody Either quick situation with while I have you here 'cause I recently just came across a quote and he was talking about Napoleon Bonaparte and Essentially Napoleon Bonaparte became Napoleon Bonaparte because he was a part of the great wars and that led him to becoming that great leader..
Saying no with Anna Mathur
"Can Be quite annoying. I had a friend who when I had my first child and I was with her and she just done a degree in child psychology I was supposed to be therapy remembered that really no different state really care anyway she just honest degree and. I was trying to start my son like climbing up I think it was like coming up afraid of stone steps several two to three row quite dangerous. Not really no idea and was saying, no, don't they wasn't cross wasn't shouting but no dunning not do that. We're not. We're not gonNA come upstairs and she was like. This quite of evidence that. We shouldn't really be saying no to our children cash is. Is the and did she have any children elision zero chills children. Children. And I was like okay. Hey. I'm always ready to take advice you give it a go So she went hey, come here and she got like a broom and she tried to distract my son from the stairs by giving him a broom to play with and he didn't really want the fucking broom and he wants to get the fucking stairs throw things off the landing and lost it a about. I'm going to say ninety seconds tops and then just quietly hopped into the kitchen just makes league imagine if that was a good distraction technique house cleaning flows pay I mean, yeah you'd be Hick go sweep call everyone knows the broom technique Emma I'm surprised she didn't bring it up earlier. But now I'm terrified you're GONNA go when actually saying not children is now established I've got I've got something helpful. Say about this the I heard on another pocus the the day zoe mother kind and There was a woman talking about that moment you got on a roller coaster and you know when you shake the harness by and you're doing it not so that it moves because you don't want you don't want it to pop up and you're doing it because you want to know that it's there to keep you safe. Yes and they were talking about boundaries with children, how the kids rattle the boundaries. Because they want to be. They want to know that their soulmate insecure. Pop Open because we want the barrier to pop open. On predictability and familiarity so.

Getting Debt Relief From Financial Institutions Is Hard Right Now
"WanNa talk some things involving where you are financially. You know a lot of people with one quarter of Americans out of work. Lot of people are having a tough time and right now many of that quarter unemployed earth finally seeing the funds flow and depending on your situation going into corona virus. Maybe you've been able to write your financial ship. Maybe not maybe some of it's okay. Some of it's not but I'm hearing so many frustrated complaints from people trying to deal with an organization typically a bank when you're having trouble making your payments you know I've said through my entire career which spans thirty three years. Now that the key when you hit a rough spot financially is early and often stay in touch with the people you owe money to. Unfortunately there are so many people trying to contact Particularly a bank with a credit card or any kind of loan product with them that you're having trouble getting through you're having trouble getting consistent answers and you're having trouble with the banks following the laws that are pertaining to corona virus. I want you to know that to not get discouraged if you get somebody at customer. No service at a bank. That doesn't care is mean-spirited. Doesn't know whatever. Thank them very much telling you gotta go. There's your food on the stove. I don't care what you tell them. Just get off that that phone call and call back and get somebody else because one of the things. That's been true and what I've heard from people what I've read in various news. Stories is the inconsistency with the banks and this is not I mean I love to beat up on the banks but this is not necessarily a bank cultural problem. It is a situation the result of so many people working remotely with the guidance changing over time and with people not in a central call center. There's been such an inconsistency with what people are being told that it's just hard to get the same message across your employees and get the same response out to consumers or borrowers when people are working remotely but when you do talk to somebody make sure you get their name When you talk you write down when you talk to them. The date If they use an employee number you want that because what you WANNA do. Is You want to take notes and document what spent promised to you on what date. And let's face facts to when we're overwhelmed. Sometimes we hear what we want to hear. So that's why I want you to take notes and even asked now. I think I heard you say that I'm allowed to do this. And you're going to allow me to not make payment for a month and you're not gonNA report me as delinquent in that time and you get them saying yes or no to that and re explain it to you if you didn't hear exactly what's going on but manage this and the more thorough. You are with notes the batter. Let's take the example of. You're told that you're going to be given a grace period and not be considered to be passed. Do Right now because of you contacting them and then the next month you gotTa dunning notice or mean-spirited collection call you can refer back to your notes and you say hey on this date this time this is what so and so told me and so you have that information as you're amunition when somebody is not treating you right but I want to deal with more fundamental thing that is a back to basics not necessarily even related to the current situation. And it's how important is to have a little lifestyle debt as you possibly can. I mean you think about credit card debt and roughly six out of ten of us. Ordinarily run balances on credit cards so on a regular basis. Four and ten people are always paying their balances and full six and ten or always running balances and these are just obviously rough numbers and then paying an average interest rate of. Let's say seventeen eighteen percent. Now think about this. The cost of fines for the banks right now for money lent on credit cards is less than one percent. So they're borrowing the money. Their cost defines is a fraction of one percent. The they then mark up to seventeen percent. How are they able to do that? Well the reason is none of us. Use Credit cards at least initially with the intent of using them as anything other than a payment system. We don't go into it fully expecting most of us at least the we're going to borrow money on them. We think we're only using them as an alternative to cash but human nature being what it is we see something we want that something we buy that something and then the bill comes weeks later like you don't have the money for that and you start carrying a balance and end up with that seventeen percent interest higher or lower. And so I'd like you. If you are in the three quarters of Americans that still have your job. You're still okay in that job for now I'd like you to take this as a clear signal that if you are carrying personal debt work on it work at down. Americans have already been much more careful spending money on things other than necessities. That means that some money may be freeing up in your budget each month if it is then be very very mindful and methodical about paying down debt and get rid of that high interest credit card debt.

Exchange the US with Binance US CEO Catherine Coley
"You just talk about that path and what you did previously and and how we got here today. Sir Super excited to share this with your listeners. They spend such a devout part of shaping the crypto ecosystem so. It's exciting to ship fan. But I began really as an experiential learner and in order for me to understand things I have to do them. There are auditory learners their visual learners in Connecticut. And I happened to be the last one so I really in order to understand how this world works at a throw myself into situations to understand them and one of the things that couldn't grasp was how the world works and I taking courses etc and always had something in the back of my head that I learned it. Was You know? Follow the money in history will teach you and so the best way to follow the money was to put yourself really in the middle of the largest flows in the world which was the foreign exchange markets and going onto a trading floor. And really witnessing what that was I read a book. Called Liar's poker in it changed my life so I mean that's that's the best way for me to understand how this world works is seeing really what people are identifying as news and what they're trading on and what swings. We're seeing in reaction and how they affect anybody else. So I got my start. On the Hong Kong trading floor at Morgan Stanley covering the onshore Asian currencies understanding that after the Asian financial crisis these countries had restrictions and limitations put on them to safeguard against potential attacks from others. So it was a very unique situation where my counterparts in. New York barely knew the difference between Malaysia System in Thailand system and yet I was super aware of those niche differences that opens and closes distinct their equities markets the the ability of having like an omnibus account versus having to do individual trades. There's another world out. There is really telling to why these economies are developing in certain way so I found it super fascinating and just enjoyed that case and the understanding a real pulse on how the world works but the world was changing so I during Dun Dun Dun during my time I witnessed it one of the jobs that I had was extremely manual. Had to move between a Bloomberg Terminal Reuters terminal and so no matter the automation that provided Skip that step and you just Kinda sat there. Frustrated blind like this is job security. They need me. I'm I'm the rotation of my My Body over here type this. There's something I can create mechanical. Do this for them but You just noticed that there were some frictions along the system. That really helped things back from going to the fully electronic funding we use the word electronic describing things this fast moving back then or now it's all digital so electronic trading was taking off the ability to put. Al Goes in the hands of your customer rather than facilitate a tea or time weighted average going through that on their own was something it was empowering your user or your customer really enjoyed being able to monitor and watch their activity. N- understood that they were getting the best price they weren't having a Middle Man. You know take things off based on how How they felt really And that that was something that we were seeing as a scaring factor on the sell side but an empowering factor when he thought about the market as a whole so I really pushed forward in dug into how electric trading and the fx platforms point be helping oftentimes told slowdown. This is ruining our enjoyable jobs as voice brokers to some extent so When I witnessed all that other Lucien I kept in the back of my head. Saying there's gotta be a better way. There's got to be faster way. I don't want any little girl to wake up and say today. I'm going to type on a Bloomberg terminal and rotate type on Reuters terminal and that's going to be why I went to school and why I continue to wake up every day. So the ability to automate that or make it moving away. Everyone can access. It was really exciting to me. So that's truthfully I think of it as I've been training for the Olympics. Those were the those were the early days that got me to say. I'm fired up about increasing the rates which we can offer institutional quality services down to the individual and streamline the whole process in itself. It boggles my mind. Three thousand people which is still small. That's the amount of sell side. Employees there are in exchange Three thousand people were dedicated to moving other people's money from one place another and ultimately that should come down further and further because moving money from you know pointed point being four axes. It's I don't know that the number of people actually changes is just the medium and the the forum through which these assets are changing hands is going to be different and it will continue to Also changed the Say there is like one person that is facilitating that trade for Hedge Fund. Then they're sixteen people dedicated to that one day. So you've got compliance. You've got your back office. You Bet your settlement team you. And if you can streamline those roles and provide alternatives for people we could have far more fulfilling in motivating experiences in life or for years and so I think there's a lot of those bottlenecks that our customers. They could be eliminated and really give people a sense environment. It's funny twenty. Fifteen was this era of blockchain. Not bitcoin right after crash and the pitch was basically about eliminating cost centers. That was the big thing that all the enterprise players got excited about an alone. Behold another entire market cycle passes in CRYPTO and. I think the reason that the public chains are so much faster aside from just the incumbents move slower by default is that twenty seventeen was all about. I can make a lot. More money with crypto. Right whether it's status you know trading whether it's market making whether it's you know creating an ICO and selling it and liquidating that is a much more compelling reason to adopt a new technology and finance than just we're gonNA limit costs right. It's like the vitamin versus painkiller. Headache get people addicted to like the the ICS drugs. There's a lot of bad things about that addiction. But you're starting to see some of the fruit born in kind of the next market cycle. Where did you come in full time to criticize? So I guess what were the exposure points that before you made the switch and what finally made you take the leap and enjoying ripple in Hong Kong. I'm twenty thirteen. Bitcoin was kind of something you bought on your p. a. just to watch is almost like a plant in your kind of like it's GonNa either grow or it's GonNa die. None of us really have too much skin in this worry about it and the other aspect of it was you were seeing in beginning to see a lot of activity taking place from these self-sided analysts in Hong Kong. One of them being Arner Hayes. It was a good buddy back when he's at Georgia And other people are taking notice so it was. It was triggering the minds of these trader types. Who Getting to see there's real value in what you mentioned the Arab the speculation The ability to to get behind this budding marketplace apply what we already knew from a larger perspective so I kind of had a cheat sheet in seeing the twelfth chapter of the book before the forward was written And so I kind of knew how the book would end in. It would only be a matter of. Did everyone knew that story. Conclusion when Up Story or did they WANNA milk it for a little while because a few of us weren't around in the eighties when markets were roaring. So I took that as an interesting thing but I really jumped in in the summer of two thousand seventeen. I was at Silicon Valley Bank catering. A lot of these texts that were beginning to use bitcoin. As a means of moving money between a places like vima non in wire those are some of the budding names that I was hearing about is like. I'm going to be on the upside of that. I want to be sitting here. Just asking them if they're hedging their effects when I could be helping them move this forward. So that's where I I saw I have linked for ripple and popped up. Asked exactly what I had in terms of my experience. Oftentimes you see something in you got. That's not really aligned. But I'm the one that knows that so I'm GonNa go for

Laundry Between Emails: Working From Home Goes Viral In The Time Of Coronavirus
"All right today's other big story around the world companies are asking their employees to work from home because of the corona virus outbreak. Some people love it other people don't. Npr's Yuki Noguchi Talk to people about their experiences. Early last Tuesday Cindy. Ruiz got an email. They're just shutting down the Office for the Week. Corona virus cases cropped up near the San Mateo Office of Dun and Bradstreet Res Works in sales for the financial data company for many the widespread. Embrace of remote work is a welcome change. They've always wanted they're reacting on social media the way kids celebrate snow days. No commutes flexible schedule. Home-cooked lunch. Ruiz however is in that camp. Sure she says there are some perks. If you could call it that I did do laundry I clearly. I'm doing laundry. The Corona virus is putting remote work to a gigantic test. The sheer scale of it is unprecedented throughout China. Italy Japan and South Korea workers have been on lockdown last week. The same happened in Seattle Amazon facebook. Microsoft and Google all told employees there to remain home. Twitter and payment company square are also working remotely. Ruiz says she misses things at the office. Like your special headset. And her big screen computer. Also her home. Wifi is neither fast nor secure enough to access some critical websites. Most of all. She misses her colleagues. This past week reminds release of her last job where she worked from home every day. That was the reason why I left that position and went to this one. I'm a person that needs to be in the office. Remote work is teaching companies a lot. About how well? They function when they're not altogether about a week ago. Jonathan Wasserman told employees to work from home he. Ceo Of Square foot a New York Commercial Real Estate Company. The last time that happened was a year ago when the office Internet went down said Okay work from home and two-thirds employs for like go but my laptops at work this time he wants to be prepared personally. Wallstrom is no fan of remote work. He says it's impossible to read a room over a conference line. Plus about a third of square foot staff are brokers they tour buildings with clients if all the sudden they said. You can't have face to face meetings with people who'd be hard for us to bunch of those transactions. In fact remote work isn't always possible. Hourly workers don't get paid if they don't work for example. Those in retail manufacturing or healthcare usually must be physically present to work. But it's a huge perk for people like tristen yet. Gaillot is a field manager for a and loves working from home in Toledo for me. It's a lot easier to work in silence. I also appreciate the fact that working from home. I can kind of migrate from room to room. If I'm not feeling super productive in one room get says it can be isolating so relying heavily on tools like slack and Webcams are key. I get a lot of face time so I don't feel like I'm like socially isolated at all. I also realize not. Everybody is built for this. If you're very extroverted which is not me. You probably would not enjoy this as much as I do. Guy Yet hopes the corona virus will help promote working from home if employers. Don't have to come in. They're not paying to commute. They're not adding to the carbon footprint. they don't have to buy or bring a lunch. It's not clear whether the corona virus will change Wasser. Strums mind about remote work. His Real Estate Company ordered loads of hand sanitizer and told employees to come back to the office. I don't believe people are productive at home at the same time. He worries about his wife. Who is seven months pregnant and commuting to her office. And we'll see how much longer we keep sending her to do that. Especially because she can meets on the subway perhaps he'll change his mind about remote work again. You GUCCI NPR news.

Are Less Experienced People More Confident?
"He rain stuff lauren. Vogel Bam here with an episode from the archives for you back when our host one Christian Saker this is one. That's come up and I think all of our conversations and frustrations lately are less informed. Armed people more confident and if so why bring stuff. It's me Christian and Sager. If you're like most people you think you're very good at some things and are able to admit your less good at others. You probably think you're superbly-talented in one honor to areas and hey you may be right you try to be honest with yourself about your strong points and you're weak ones and you likely shake your head in pity at people you see as well. Oh stupid say things like. Why don't they understand that they're bad at doing stuff? Well there is an answer. But you're not gonna like it and this answer it doesn't just apply to people you think of as dumb it applies to everyone on earth including you and me. It's not a matter of intelligence necessarily a difficult fickle thing to measure but it is related to competence the ability to do something well in nineteen ninety nine psychologist named David Dunning and his Grad assistant didn't Justin Kruger tested. A group of students in several categories the ability to think logically to write grammatically and to spot. Funny Jokes folks. They also asked students to rate their skills in these categories. That is when they noticed something. Weird the people scoring below average on these tests were just incompetent in these categories. They also didn't know they were incompetent. And here's the kicker the less competent they were are the more competent. They ranked themselves. This is a phenomenon called illusory superiority this is a cognitive bias. Bias wherein people tend to rate their own abilities as above average multiple. Studies have proven this effect in everything from firearms to college. DEBATES AND MED students opinions of their interviewing skills. It doesn't seem to matter what specific skill were talking about. The less person knows about it the more likely they are to overestimate their knowledge. While dunning and Kruger popularized this effect in modern society. They weren't the first people to notice the relationship between confidence modesty. Honesty and skill philosophers throughout the ages have contemplated this idea like Bertrand Russell. Who famously wrote the trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure talk? Show in the intelligent are full of doubt. And here's another weird thing. People with actual competency are likely to actually underestimate their abilities. Researchers believe this modesty comes because competent people are more aware of how much they don't actually know as well as their field in general they also also consistently overestimate the performance ability of others. It all goes back to
